report for our continuing coverage of super tuesday elections. joining us is michael steel and former republican presidential candidate himself herman cain. now, i want to begin with my friend herman cain. >> hello, larry. sfoo hello, herman. supporting newt gingrich, which i totally respect, and i totally respect newt's issues, herman, and i totally respect you, but there is no electability. we're going to find that out after tonight. my big kwu to you, herman cain, is when you regroup, what are you looking for for issues and who will you support in the next round? >> the next round, larry, isn't going to come early. it's going to come a lot later than most people realize, and i beg to differ with you. i think newt is electable, and here's why. i have spent the last several days as well as a week ago actually on the ground talking to people campaigning with newt, campaigning with his daughter, and sometimes giving speeches, and there's a different level of enthusiasm that's growing for newt that i don't think is being captured in some of the polls. for example, he has already been de
of the candidates and all i have to say is, i love you back. thank you. >> michael steele, these have become pivot points for the candidates. we saw that with rick santorum. we saw it with mitt romney. >> let me ask you a question. i'd love to get the students' feedback on this. how did you feel in listening to those two sound bites. which one actually made you move toward that candidate if not physically, at least a little bit emotionally? and that's the rub right there for mitt romney. who gave, i thought, a very -- what's the word. sort of clean. it was like going to the doctor's office. it was everything -- it was sanitized. rick santorum was like you could -- that moment when he says i love you back. you could almost feel, thank you. yeah, i love you, too, man. it was a very different kind of connection. and that's been the undertone that's been driving a lot of the angst for the base is that i'll go fight for you, but i really want to go fight for you. i just don't want to fight for you because you have the moniker of gop nominee on your head. and so the broader public picks up on these thin
's next for the candidate, and msnbc analyst michael steele and eugene robinson weigh s in. >>> later, more details in the trayvon martin case, his girlfriend describes their conversation just before he was killed, reverend al sharpton and charles blow from the new york times join me on that tonight. stay with us, we're right back. details later in this hour, we'll be right back. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." tonight was a big win for mitt romney in the state of illinois, and it raises questions about whether rick santorum has any real shot of being a factor in this race anymore. this was rick santorum tonight. >> all it boils down to one word, and that's what's at stake in this election, and it's right behind me on that banner and it's the word freedom. i was pleased to hear, before i came out, governor romney is now adapting that theme as his speech tonight. i am glad we are moving the debate here in the republican party. >> freedom, well, it's also about delegates, but santorum may be running out of opportunities to move the debate in this race. many of the big contests coming
committee, michael steele. perfect morning to have you all onboard. willie, hello. >> wow. >> a couple of things went down last night. we -- mitt lost to rick santorum and to newt. right? >> third place in both states. >> that's not good, michael. >> not good. and they keep crying about the numbers, we've got the delegates and i think willie had the perfect quote for the day. you know, it's like you know, vote for me, i've got the math. it doesn't work like that. >> the math -- >> something like that. >> they keep talking about the math. >> well, they do, and the reality of it is, you're not going to waltz into the nomination with the votes in the back pocket. give all that to romney, fine, you're close to somewhere around 400 delegates short to actually the get the nomination. and with proportional voting coming up with everything else, unless he's pulling 50% to 60% of that vote, i don't know how he gets there. the only way it happens is if newt or santorum drops out of the race and that changes it. but as you can see from last night, i don't think anybody's going anywhere. there's n
former rnc chair, michael steele. the host of msnbc's "way too early," sir william geist of vanderbilt, the indubitable patricia murphy of the daily beast and citizen jane politics, and the lovely "new york daily news" very own columnist, s.e. cupp. the senate voted 51 to 48 against a measure that would have repealed president obama's contraception mandate, a closer vote than i thought it would be, actually. unsurprisingly, those running for president and specifically we'll talk about mitt romney, have had a tricky time with this. mitt romney yesterday saying for about an hour that he did not support the blunt amendment, and then reversing course abruptly, an hour or so later, saying he would. it is a classic mitt romney move, is it not, michael steele? >> why me? >> we give you the softballs. >> i prefer notorious, probably will be after this answer. but, no, i think, yeah, for me, i think it was an honest moment, to be quite frank about it. and you know, that's what happens in politics. i've been there! you know, when you say that you speak truth -- or at least how you
dnc chairman governor howard dean, former gop chairman michael steel. we'll face offer. is the election over? no way. we've hardly begun. today is gonna be an important day for us. you ready? we wanna be our brother's keeper. what's number two we wanna do? bring it up to 90 decatherms. how bout ya, joe? let's go ahead and bring it online. attention on site, attention on site. now starting unit nine. some of the world's cleanest gas turbines are now powering some of america's biggest cities. siemens. answers. this is an rc robotic claw. my high school science teacher made me what i am today. our science teacher helped us build it. ♪ now i'm a geologist at chevron, and i get to help science teachers. it has four servo motors and a wireless microcontroller. over the last three years we've put nearly 100 million dollars into american education. that's thousands of kids learning to love science. ♪ isn't that cool? and that's pretty cool. ♪ >> welcome back to the kudlow report. i'm larry kudlow. the republican presidential candidates gear up for the big super tuesday sh
of the end says mark halperin. michael steele, you once said that mitt romney, the brother just can't bake the cake. it looks like the oven may be hot enough for romney. let's look at the winner board. romney at 47% of the vote in illinois. rick santorum at 35%. ron paul at 9% is, gingrich at 8%. more staggering i guess is the delegate total romney at 485, santorum at 193, gingrich at 137, paul at 34. what do you make of it? >> i agree with park. he's clearly and always been kind of the guy to beat and been out there, but it doesn't mean you're not going to have tensions going into this convention that i still don't believe he'll have 1144 when he gets to tampa. he'll have to negotiate that. i don't see how he wins 50 plus percent of the delegates. he got 47 here in illinois, which was tailor-made for him. illinois's a state where he should have had 52, 53% of the vote in which case that -- when you hit that threshold, you get all the dels under the rules. if you're still winning the way he's winning, it's all proportional. tell me where you get to the number. this thing goes on. newt ging
't be called tonight in ohio. former chairman of the republican party michael steele, and you have been a booster for the long drawn out primary campaign and does that apply to long drawn out primary nights like th like this? do you lick your chops and see this type of night for the republicans? >> i do. actually, i do. because it is part of the american story and we complain about people when they don't get en ga engage and you wonder why and when you create an avenue for them to express themselves and make a choice, we should celebrate that, and i do. yeah, i mean, do you want to be up at 1:00 or 2:00 in the morning and doing politics? some of us do, but most of us don't, but the point is that the people of ohio like we have seen in idaho and georgia and elsewhere tonight had a chance to get out and to save, hey, this is who we want. think about it this way, rachel, you know, under the old system this contest given all of the other, you know, pieces to it could have been over at the beginning of february. when you go through the iowa caucuses and that process and romney comes out and
steele. michael, romney's line to his donors in new york city went something like this. it's going to be a long road, but we're winning the most delegates and we're going to be the nominee. kind of like what he said in an interview yesterday. >> right. >> by the way, last night i got more delegates than anybody else. so this is a process of becoming the nominee. we're pursuing that. some who are very conservative may not yet be in my camp, but they will be when i become the normal anemia and face barack obama. >> is that the right message? >> it is. they want to know, you know, how sure are you about the footing you have ragt now? how are you doing in your delegate count? what's your burn rate so far? how much are you taking in? >> did you take that at all to say to those other people to mean the conservatives who have supported rick santorum or newt gingrich, you're not going to have a choice. you're going to have to come over to me in november. >> keep in mind, he's talking to people who are supporting him, so that's a different conversation than the one you're going to have when
obama and vice president biden in campaign mode. michael steele was the chair of the republican national committee and howard fineman is the editorial director of "the huffington post" media empire. both are msnbc political analysts. thank you, howard. you know, let's take a look right now at joe biden. joe biden's on fire today. the vice president was fired up in toledo, ohio. he took on the republican candidates, naming names and leveling attacks on all their candidates. here's some of his speech from today. let's watch. >> mitt romney, rick santorum, and newt gingrich. these guys have a fundamentally different economic philosophy than we do. simply stated, we're about promoting the private sector, they're about protecting the privileged sector! we are for a fair shot and a fair shake. they're about no rules, no risks, and no accountability. i want to tell you what's real bankruptcy. the economic theories of gingrich, santorum and romney. they are bankrupt. if you give any one of these guys the keys to the white house, they will bankrupt the middle class again. >> well, let me start wi

, the struggle for survival inside the obama white house." and michael steele, msnbc analyst and former rnc chairman. thank you both for being here tonight. >> good to see you, rev. >> michael, you handing out life preservers or is there still time to right this ship? >> abandon ship. no, look, i think both these gentlemen have touched an appropriate nerve that is getting everyone's attention focused on whether or not we are seriously going to contest for not just the nomination but for the white house this fall. and i think the battles that we have seen so far, the bickering, the back and forth, the ugly ads, all of this is fodder that's been fed to the democrats and that will get replayed against the eventual nominee this fall. so, yeah. i think george will is saying, look. everybody needs to start taking a look at this thing and seeing that at some point, we may have to re-evaluate what the real priority is going to be for november. and so we have time to do that. in other words, let's get it right now, but if we continue down this path, and i agree 100% with him, we might as well focus
and michael steele is chairman of the republican national party and an msnbc political analyst. let's see how long we agree. there are several possible outcomes. there's two states. how many outcomes can there be from the votes tonight in mississippi and alabama. first, let's say santorum wins both tonight. if that happens, that means newt gets blown out of the race, i think. and santorum secures the position of clearly number-one challenger to mitt romney. let's stop. here's another possibility. gingrich could win both tonight. he's from that area. he's from georgia. that could hit santorum, which helps romney. it keeps him in the race. third, you could have a gingrich/santorum split tonight. each one winning a state. if that happens, no big changes. finally, romney could take one of the states, say mississippi. that's big for romney because if he wins mississippi and newt wins alabama, that's very bad for santorum and very good for romney. that's my view. let's go through your thinking. >> i agree with that. >> all that? >> i agree those are the basic four scenarios. i guess i agree with th
thing. they are no more thoughtful than the rest of us let's ask an actual gatekeeper. michael steele joins us from washington as chairman of the republican national committee, he oversaw the changes and the rules of this year's delegation. >> call me crazy. how are you doing? >> i would never call you crazy. >> crazy like a fox, crazy like a fox. >> that's -- that's -- you can now make the case. have you the opportunity to make that case. here's what i would like you to describe to us. there were rule changes that were created in november, 2008. >> my understanding was that there was a feeling that -- on the republican side that john mccain sewed up the nomination too quickly. and actually the long contested primary on the democratic side which at the time everyone was worried about was actually the party's benefit and rules were changed with an eye towards moving the contest in that direction. is that the case? >> you just summed it up perfectly. exactly the analysis that came out of the 2008 primary. by this time in 2008, our nominee was decided and it was john mccain and for the n
to romney after the results. florida, michael steele continues to contend that those rules are not fair, that they shouldn't have been winner take all. look, if he doesn't get to 1144, the way old credential committees and lawrence, i know i'm beginnigi giving you flashb it's going to be chaos. >> in a universe where there's the potential for this kind of shenanigans in dels, who benefits from that, the team with the best lawyers, the best back room operators? certainly the team that has both of those is going to be benefited over the other, but you know, it also is going to come down to who has the emotional connection if it came down to with the delegates at the detention. these candidates will have to get up and give a speech, the speech of their lives. all of the preplanned showbiz aspects of the convention where you're trying to drive a message, trying to connect with the american people will be totally out the window. it will be total chaos. it's anyone's guess what will happen. there's absolutely no modern precedent for it. >> chuck todd, steve schmidt and rachel maddow. thank yo

't know the answers to them. the brokered convention, i i mean, even michael steel that was saying on friday he thought that's where we were going to end up wrrn gingrich may have his own motives for pushing for something like that, and the extraordinary moment, though, but it's -- i don't think for gingrich or any of the pundits it's about him winning the nomination, but what is the back burn that may be machiavellian going on here. >> every juniorist at this table started to salivate when you use that term. >> absolutely. >> everyone in the press wants one. >> secondly, you know, if newt gingrich is not winning anything and he can't even win osd of his home state of georgia, why doesn't the press just ignore him or minimize mihm or not pay attention to them as opposed this constant psychoanalyze of why newt refuses to get out of the race, and his ego. >> he is still collecting dell fwats. this does affect romney's total and could affect that brokered convention. >> i want you to give us your analytic take on why there is this -- i should say obsession among journalists with what
